Free CryENGINE Plans

Develop has word that Crytek plans on releasing a free version of their upcoming CryENGINE 3, similar to the free version of the Unreal engine Epic offers as the Unreal Development Kit. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli tells them, "we do want to make a standalone free platform that people can run independent of CryEngine that will also be up to speed with the latest engine." Thanks VG247.

Actually I'd have to disagree with what you're saying about id tech 5.

From all the interviews/videos Carmack and friends have been putting more effort into making the tools user friendly. I remember him saying something along the lines of "when it was a small group of us it didn't matter if the tools were easier to use because it was just us. But now with Zenimax we have a bigger teams and our tools have to be simpler to use for them".

If you wish I'll find where he said that, or excaty what he said. However, they are now making the effort into it and from what I've seen it was just as impressive as Unreal Dev Kit (I am currently using this).

I look forward to more competition in this area as it leads to stronger engines for us who don't want to run under a publisher or outlay a sweet 800k on a engine license. 25% of profits given to them after the distributer takes their cut won't affect that greatly until you're talking about making $3million or so, and by that stage you have enough cash to pay for the proper license.

Bring it on I say, personally I'm glad UDK came out as it saved me from using Unity which I didn't like so much but matched my requirements, but UDK does what I want and to get started hasn't cost me a cent. When it comes to release I'll pay them their $99 and get my accountant to deal with the 25% issues.

Welcome to a newer business model, and it isn't a bad thing at all.
